understanding that we're in a frugal environment. you have a tough jock. ijob i think if we can work together we institute the forms, respond in a creative, compassionate way, and yet keep an eye on the bottom line. i think that's what we people of the country and those affected would want us to do. right now there is heart break in maryland. and what i do want to comment on the things that -- we want to thank the president for issuing so quickly and promptly the decoration of general disaster deep ration. we want to thank secretary gamp. janet napolitano. you declared we're eligible for public assistance. we want to thank you for you that. our project problem is the individuals and hud, i never thought hud would get high marks in the eastern shore. you are. and also in other part of the state where there's compelling need in which you responded particularly to the most vulnerable population and those that in assisted or subsidized houses. thank you. we in maryland, first of all, we are a water state. we have the ocean, we have the bay, we have rivers that leave the bay. it could flood and send

it take to get back to the levels of migration that created this political environment created ten or 15 years ago. and by the time her the latino electorate gets to the voting age it's always a question one side or the other very hard to tell, difficult to understand what mobilizes people when they are young. the other question is who are they? what are their values. debate otas people who didn't go to college to have a very hard time winning? do they vote economic interest? we have a good idea of what those economic interests are likely to be. low-income working class many of them were, their parents don't have the money easily to send them to college and public education system is doing terribly with them. the college going rates are up the they are not going to the four year degrees. there are a lot of reasons to assume the economic shape of this. if you take the idea that they are coming -- they are going to come into the politics as coalition players. you are looking at a different kind coalition that rather -- i think we are agreeing. the point here is building of the last thing y
